Connecting Classrooms

Delivered on behalf of the British Council, the Connecting Classrooms programme provides teachers with the knowledge to integrate core skills teaching in their classroom. Core skills are the essential skills that young people need to be fully prepared for life and work in a global economy.

Fully Funded CPD from the British Council and Creative Education

Connecting Classrooms

Creative Education is offering a new set of British Council core skills courses across England under the new Connecting Classrooms programme to help you to improve your classroom practice and develop your ideas with like-minded teachers internationally.

The ‘teaching the core skills’ training packages give teachers the knowledge and approaches they need to effectively integrate the teaching of core skills in the classroom.

WHAT ARE CORE SKILLS?

Core skills are the essential skills that young people need to be fully prepared for life and work in a global economy. Sometimes referred to as deep learning skills, they introduce young people to new ways of working, new ways of thinking and new ways of living in a global world.

SUITABILITY

All of the programmes are suitable for any qualified teaching staff, from all sectors ranging from EYFS to FE, including special schools and PRUs.

These programmes are only available to teachers based within state schools or colleges in England. Individuals are only permitted to attend one course. If you are based elsewhere or internationally please visit the British Council website. For more information about any of these programmes, please email the team or call 020 8253 8249.

THE PROGRAMMES

Each programme will be taught over a 9/10-week period, with 2 face-to-face sessions taking place at the beginning and end, as well as webinars and online support throughout.

IN-HOUSE TRAINING

All of the Connecting Classrooms programmes are available to be delivered in your school for free for a minimum of 10 delegates.

We will also cover the subsistence fees for any external delegates in attendance (if applicable). For further information please call the team on 020 8253 8249.

INTERNATIONAL PROFESSIONAL PARTNERSHIPS

Once you have completed the training, you can move on to develop an international professional partnership with an overseas school. The professional partnerships will allow you to seek advice and support on embedding the core skills in your curriculum and classroom. Benefits of the partnership include:

  • an international element to your CV and teaching credentials
  • broadening your horizons by sharing experience with a school from a different culture
  • learning more about education in a different context to reapply this at home
  • the opportunity to become a member of an international network of learners
  • materials developed by educational experts to help you collaborate with your professional partner.
